CPR: March 2004: More Monkey Business
"Over the years, different approaches have been employed by these groups," Dr. Charles Granger, a professor of biology at the University of Missouri-St.Louis, explained."Now, it has evolved into a critique that we should all be open-minded and listen to all possible hypotheses no matter how absurd they are.They are using the words of science to openly explore topics that are antithetical to science itself."Indeed, it is in the very name of scientific skepticism and a broad-minded vision of "tolerance" that the bill's authors seek to challenge the fundamental tenets of evolution.They are using pseudo-scientific means for non-scientific ends.For Granger, the bill's text betrays a complexity and command of the jargon of genetics and evolutionary biology that can only mean one thing: it was, at least in part, authored outside of Missouri by an organization or think tank fostering a larger national effort."I thought all this monkey business was behind us," said Granger.One of the underlying vulnerabilities for serious scientists in this debate, Granger suggests, is the difficulty of teaching evolution in the first place.
